Lahore, October 12, 2014 (PPI-OT): Pakistan Test and ODI captain Misbah-ul-Haq opted out of the last one-dayer of the three against Australia at Abu Dhabi today of his own volition.
“Misbah wanted to rest himself from the dead-rubber ODI match against Australia, and Shahid Afridi was a stand-in captain for this game only. For the remainder of the series, as appointed by the Chairman, Misbah remains the captain”, said Manager/Chief Selector Moin Khan.
